Though the indian government has launched the swachh bharat abhiyan with great fanfare it has not been able to change the mindset of the citizens, especially the young men of panaji, who treat city as one big dustbin . Most of the chronic spitters of panaji, appear to be operating in st inez, specifically close to the pwd water supply department office
One spitting incident was noted at 16.17 hours Indian standard time, on footpath opposite the PWD office, st inez, panaji A tall thin young man leaning on a motorcyle was talking to three other young men and he spit on the pavement.
The second incident took place at 18.32 hours indian standard time, about 10 meters away from the PWD office. A young man wearing a red tshirt, carrying a one liter mineral water bottle taken from the refrigerator, first littered the pavement with a plastic packaging. He then spat on the pavement before walking away in the direction of the pwd office
Government officials like to talk about young people, give them more opportunities, they should also teach these young people some civic sense, imposing service tax for swachh bharat abhiyan will not help much, only changing the attitude of the young towards littering and spitting will ensure that india remains clean.
